Fifth Viscount Torrington et al. in Cardiff - 1 August, 1787
from A Tour in South Wales, 1787, page 283:
At my return […] I walk’d for some time with Mr Os[born]; when we order’d a harper to attend us, (the first we have had,) who, if not of the neatest taste, rattled away to my amusement, (particularly Lady Townshends Delight) and was conversed with, in Welsh, by Mr Traherne; who eat some cold meat, and stay’d till eleven o’clock.
